Turkish Police blast Gay Pride Paraders with water cannons… instantly create rainbows – LOL
Turkish Karma

To be fair, no one has verified this hasn’t been photoshopped – but even if that turns out to be the case – the photo has already gone viral and is now an integral part of the gay pride history 🙂

Ernie Bert

When my son was little and he watched Sesame Street with his older sisters, they would point to the screen and ask “Who’s that?” and my son would say “Big Bird” or “Cookie monster” or “Ernie-Bert”. And as many times as they each tried to get him to separate the names, he held fast – they were Ernie-Bert! One persona – one entity – one soul.

And now today they truly are 🙂

From Slate:

And the observation from Mother Jones that quietly inspires so much hope for our humanity:


… not just a few countries… THE REST OF THE ENTIRE WORLD thinks US gun control laws are beyond stupid.

Jeff puts it into perspective with humour. But really it’s not funny.

I may have published this before… old age is definitely setting in… but I don’t care… it’s worth watching again 🙂

Kyle & Jackie O are two controversial DJ’s, currently hosting morning talk radio in Sydney Australia. They recently posted this video to their website and I discovered it in my news feed on FB this morning.

Actually I am not at all certain Kyle & Jackie O are in Sydney at the moment – their careers take so many turns as they stumble over one controversy after another – but rumour has it that they’ve been offered $12 million by the very company that last fired them… so maybe…

The FB post does not acknowledge where this bit of video interview comes from but I did some digging and found this report at the Daily Telegraph. It’s evidently from February and makes me wish I got more Irish TV.




Proving a dog is never too old to learn new tricks, Donald Trump has followed a long line of quack-politicians who have figured out that one only needs to pretend to run for office in order to secure lots and lots of free money. It’s almost a religion, this SuperPAC cult of scam artists who legally bilk the ill-informed, less than street smart, gullible Americans out of as much money as possible during an election cycle.

And I’m pretty sure we can all thank Sarah Palin – who lowered the political bar back in 2008 by demonstrating through her fraudulent-yet-oh-so-profitable PAC that one doesn’t need to be educated, civic-minded or even well-intended to pretend-run for office – one only needs to embrace the shroud of deceit long enough to fill the coffers.

Trust me – when The Donald’s pockets are full and before his toupee flies off in the wind exposing his bald reality, he will hop off his campaign dais with a wink and a wave and return to scamming only those who invest in his crappy real estate ventures.

But at least on Facebook we can enjoy the early polls:

from 2014 but still makes me LOL…
